A tangential remark: I recently worked on a job that used a key color. Although the CMYK mix was matched carefully across all the contributing applications, the actual color displayed totally differently in FrameMaker to Illustrator. When both the imported Illustrator work and the FrameMaker files were combined and output to PDF, the two 'different' colors appeared the same, and correct. I guess FrameMaker's color rendering is a little behind that of Adobe's CS2 applications. -- Steve
